  1. Thought I'd share an EOS M RAW Video in 2.5K Mode with the Russian Cine Lens Vega 7-1 20mm F2: EOS M 2.5K Raw B/W 2.5K ML RAW @ 2.35:1 [2520X1072] - No Letterbox added. ISO 100 23.976FPS 1/48 Lightly Graded in MLV APP, exported in a 4K Timeline [FCPX]
  2. Good to know! May look into it as I really like the 25mm look owning a 7Artisans 25mm. I own the zeiss Jena tessar 50mm f2.8. Very nice character indeed. Though it's just slow for a 50mm. Heard good things about the 35mm f2.4, but whenever I get a medium/wide lens, I'm somewhat forced to get the equivalent brand 50mm. I've already owned the pancolar 50mm but find it a little saturated like Jena tessars and not as organic as the contax zeiss line. Never tried the Rollei Zeiss QBM Mount, wondering if they allow for infinity focus with EF Adapters or EF Mount. Cheers!
  3. Indeed! Thanks for sharing those clip grabs. The 25mm looks like a scene from the Force Awakens or something. Well Done! I've heard the ZF/ZE are poor wide open and too "clinical" which has kept me away from them. I have used Zeiss Practical PB Mount also which are fantastic. The Zeiss Practica PB Mount 28mm f2.8 is a steal if you find it, just a pain to adapt. It's as sharp, if not sharper than the Contax Zeiss 28mm I used to own and goes for less $120 or less if you can find it attached to a poor camera. Cheers!
  4. Thanks Alex. Contax Zeiss series do work wonders! I used to own the 50 1.4 and was inspired to collect these again after seeing them being used very nicely with the URSA Mini. They really create a cinematic feel/vibe! Cheers
  5. In light of all the latest cameras out now, magic lantern is still awesome. This is a recent video put together from the eos m raw. Contax Zeiss 50mm f1.7 + Canon EOS M RAW https://youtu.be/w5YeZfvpee8 Still a great camera from 2012.
  6. Thank you. Still need some practice with these adapters (especially aligning them and cropping sides in post). Best way forward is to test your current anamorphic setup with double focus and if you're sold on the look and the effort, then a "single-focus" solution may be the next step forward. For me, I prefer the general use of spherical lens for short films, but anamorphic is fun! Thanks
  7. Canon EOS M RAW 2x Anamorphic with 7Artisans 55mm f1.4 & MOSTY SC43 2x Adapter. *Double Focus *Recorded @4:3 (1600x1158) converted to 2.39:1 (4096x1716)
  8. I mean each visual in the sequence of clips flow nicely, creates a nice atmosphere.
  9. I guess the story exceeds the resolution Nice one! @theraywong.
  10. Really like the look of this one. The look is nostalgic and seems as though it was shot using B4 Lenses or C Mount Lens. Good work! (Just hope the GH2 wasn't used to make this, otherwise I might add this camera to my shopping cart).
  11. Agree with this. Run & Gun Anamorphic is the way to go with all these new, light weight, mirrorless cameras these days. Having great luck with the MOSTY SE 16mm 2x [GOLD], very nice anamorphic adapter indeed, rally sharp wide open, faster focus than my taking lens.
  12. I have four EOS M batteries, but barely get through the second, then again, i'm using vintage lenses. I'm guessing you're using the native lenses? There is a dummy adapter where you can charge the camera with a power bank (5000mah, 10,000mah etc.) via the usb end. I know its a 'dummy adapter', but it's a 'no-brainer' (pun intended).

  13. Haha, all good. Its good to see the EOS M getting a good work out Best cam for me in my opinion. A lot of people are seeing its true potential and what beautiful footage it can create for the price.
  14. Definitely an interesting one! Looking forward to seeing the winners Guess GH2/NX200 users have a good bet...
  15. I think color grading should be allowed. What if canon users want to use EOS HD profiles or cinestyle? Some of these look flat.
  16. No problem. I they're both great cameras for sure! I just prefer the form factor of the EOS M and how the files look when they're graded compared to the 5DII. Cheers
  17. I have two EOS M's and have had two 5D2's, the 5D is cleaner than the EOS M without the speedbooster at high ISOs. Pop a speedbooster on the EOS M and then they're pretty close with the 5D slightly at the upper hand. Honestly, I don't get the point of shooting at high ISO's (unless it's your base ISO e.g. 800). If you must shoot in the dark, just use some cheap lights, an iphone screen or something and then add de-noising and it's fine.
  18. No problem. It's cheap as chips, you can't go wrong. I used to have a Panasonic G85, I'd choose the EOS M with ML any day of the week for my purposes. The EOS M2 is also developing with it's magic lantern capability, though not sure if it's fully ready as I haven't seen any examples anywhere. It has a little more Dynamic Range (11.4 vs 11.1 on the original M). Not a world of a difference though.
  19. Yes you can in ML Menu, not sure about the normal EOS M Menu.
  20. This is what my Editing Board looks like in Final Cut PRO X. Typically the same format for all my videos. I use Davinci Resolve for the BMPCC.
  21. No, no slow motion was used in the video "quick night test", it's just really slow movement from myself and a bit of stabilisation. The Tamron 85mm f1.8 VC is a renown lens, should be good, although it will make footage look a little compressed if that's what you're after. The VC is really good on it, I used to have the 45mm F1.8 a while back with my 5DIII.
  22. Nice one, it actually works really nicely! I use a Macbook PRO 2012 with 16gb ram and 512gb ssd and upscaling to 3840x2160 is fine. I exported a total 114 clips with that resolution. The trick is that I record for no more than 6 seconds per shot or below 10 seconds at max which is all I need. So it exports quickly per clip when upscaling to 4K. Longer clips will take a long time.
  23. 720p is a no-go with RAW on any ML Capable camera as it will produce aliasing like crazy! Aliasing is common nature for digital cameras, some more than others. There is aliasing even with Blackmagic RAW Cameras. I wouldn't touch 720p at all. I also have the nifty fifty STM and that lens is really great, but aliasing can be quite pronounce depending on how you use it (e.g. infinity focus or wide open).
